Started out as a phone man (put a phone in a ladies kitchen and one in the bedroom , made sure they rang and you could make calls and everyone was happy). Now I am a phone man, internet tech, catv tech, computer tech, underground utility contractor, fiber optic splicer, and a whole lot of jobs I didn't sign up for back in 1977!!!

I'm a Full time student majoring in Wildlife Biology. Occasionally, I get contract jobs working for wildlife non-profits. I currently am a FT security guard contracted out to Chevron AMBU guarding their natural gas wells here in western PA. Three 12 hour shifts a week allows me plenty of time to play with my bird dog. also have been a volunteer firefighter for the last 6 years.

Information Technology manager. Sounds impressive doesn't it? Translate, I punch keys and sit on my keester. My degree is in Electrical Engineering, so I still can't figure out why I wound up here.

Karen, my wife is our Senior programmer and works with me, she has written the software our company uses to manage our inventory, roll counts, and she's responsible for tracking all product beginning to end throughout our process. Did I mention she also maintains our customized (by her) accounting software too?
